Whenever I start a new email in Mail, my .mac account is the default account the application uses to send the email.  However, I do not use this account, I only have it set up for the few emails that might come through.  My main account is my Google account.  How can I set up mail so that when I click the "new email" icon, my Google email address is the default one??

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)
